Synopsis: Her first thought: "Who are you?"

It's the morning after her cousin's bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she's in a stranger's penthouse having woken up with something else as well—a funny, arrogant, sexy...husband!

Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible—been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with, Connor Reed and she's gone from first meet to marriage in one night!

Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor's shocking bombshell?

"I don't want a divorce."

"You want to win the genetic jackpot, then skip the pit stop at Gamblers Anonymous altogether. Obviously your best bet is on me." - Connor

3.5 stars

After agreeing to have a marriage of convenience, Connor and Megan set some rules about their family and everything seems to go on their way until their hearts decided to intervene.

There's something about two couples being in love but trying so hard to deny it that I find appealing. I like to read about the way they resist to their pull towards each other.. and fail. It might be a cliche but it usually depends on how it's written and I like how Kelly did it.

Connor was adorable. He might not be the most handsome guy ever described in books but he was damn attractive the way he was written. I like the fact that he's not a one-night stand kind of guy despite his cynic views about love.

Megan too was fun to read. Her vulnerability and her doubts makes her character genuine. The only problem I had was her and the sperm donor issue. It was implied numerous times that she wanted to have a kid, thus the artificial insemination but it wasn't emphasized why and how much she wanted this other than mere mentions about it. I don't understand whether she wants to have a kid that bad or she just wants it just because.

"She'd been a hassle from the start. The kind of work he never invested in the relationships. She'd taken time. She'd taken romancing. She'd kept him on his toes, kept him working, kept him guessing. She'd infuriated and confused him. And he'd relished every minute of it."

This is one of those books that I don't mind being predictable. It was fun and easy to read, not to mention that this is also pack with sexiness and romance.
